A Blandy Experimental Farm Engagement Photo Shoot | Jake + Abi
With Jake and Abi’s wedding right around the corner, I figured this would be a good time to share some of my favorites from their engagement photo shoot at Blandy Experimental Farm! Blandy is one of my favorite locations for engagements as it offers a both classic Virginia architecture and stunning landscapes.
Blooming Hill Lavender Farm | Mini Sessions | Peter and Mikala
This summer I returned to one of my most favorite spots in all of Loudoun County – Blooming Hill Lavender Farm. It’s the location where my husband and I gave our marriage vows, so returning 5 years later for my summer mini sessions felt absolutely amazing!
A Morven Park Engagement Photo Shoot | Cooper & Alexis | Leesburg, VA
It's so odd posting photos of a snowy engagement when I currently have the windows open enjoying this beautiful June evening! However, Cooper and Lexi tie the knot NEXT WEEK, so I figured I should get these photos up before then! 🙂 I was so thankful that in the...
Peter and Mikala’s Sky Meadows Engagement Session
My friendship with Peter and Mikala began when Peter moved into the empty desk next to me at work. I wasn't sure how we would get along as office mates, but any worries I had instantly vaporized when he started talking about Mikala. The way he would talk about her,...
Levi and Mindy’s Georgetown Waterfront Engagement Session
As I’m sitting here looking at the snow outside my window, I can’t believe we were enjoying weather last week sunny enough to allow Mindy to wear a sleeveless dress for her engagement photos.

Aaron and Elisabeth’s Red Rock Engagement
I peered inside the old building and saw a beautiful, ivy-covered wall—but about a 4.5 foot drop to get in and a floor covered in thick branches. I turned around and started arranging Aaron and Elisabeth outside instead. After a few shots, Elizabeth said, "Don't you...
Chris and Georgia’s Blandy Experimental Farm Proposal
It's always when you get the text, "We're here!" that your heart REALLY starts pounding at a proposal session! Even though Chris and I had planned out exactly where he would kneel down and where I would be hiding, I was worried that Georgia would look straight through...
Chaz and Hallie’s Harpers Ferry Engagement Session
Driving through the back roads of Virginia put me in the perfect mood for a sunset engagement shoot! The golden sunshine splashed across the mountains and historic building in Harpers Ferry just begged to be the backdrop to an engagement session. So we obliged...
John and Mackenzi’s National Portrait Gallery Engagement Session in DC
I simply adore the way these two look at each other. When I told John and Mackenzi at the beginning of the engagement session to have fun and “generally be in love with each other,” they grinned and said it wouldn’t be a problem at all. True to their word, the entire...
